4 stars Yes I have to agree with reviewer Lethe, this album has some lack of rythym between compositions, hence not flowing in all parts but although Taurus 2 is very good, more rock orientated than his previous work, side 2 is his better side...' Family Man' makes Hall and Oates version look pathetic and Oldfield is the original version too, perhaps Virgin did not market it better, Orabidoo one of Oldfield most diverse songs and totally out of kilter with his normal output. ' Mount Teidi' is a good reason why we all love Carl Palmer on drums. A great album in the main but some inconsistencies cropped in at times when we all expected perfection from Oldfield.
